Has your little one been diagnosed with autism? If so, you might feel overwhelmed.
The good news is that children who receive therapy before age five achieve the best outcomes. And the earlier your child begins to communicate, socialize and learn on their own, the faster they can be successful at home and when they enter kindergarten.
We know that autism can be diagnosed earlier now. We also know that the sooner we can address the issues, the better the outcome for your child.
Why is our therapy so successful? Because for children with autism, it feels like play.
At KGH, we specialize in developmental and play-based ABA therapy for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
We do this through Naturalistic Developmental Behavioral Intervention (NDBI). Our NDBI approach uses ABA therapy in a fun, play-based and developmentally appropriate order.
Our goal is to close the gap between your child’s current learning challenges and development. And they’ll have many fun and social experiences along the way!
How We Can Help at this Age
Our developmental and play-based ABA therapy prepares your child to:
Effective sensory processing and integration is key to learning. Occupational therapy at this age helps kids learn to process information coming from their eyes, ears, muscles, nose and their body in space. They learn to integrate this information as they learn, play and grow.
We will use whatever supports your child needs to develop a form of communication. Research shows that kids with ASD benefit from visual supports that to help produce more verbal language. Whatever it takes to get your child to communicate, we will help them.
Our infant-toddler group, Pint-Sized Pals, serves as an introduction to early socialization in a group setting. Several areas of development will be targeted such as cognitive, social, communication, and adaptive skills.
